Commission, trailing commissions, management fee and expenses may be associated with investments. Products are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. The indicated rates of return are historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns. Historical fund returns are based on net asset values that include a management fee of 0.30%. Prior to January 2011 the fund was not charged a management fee.
